James Remar Talks DEXTER Season 7 and Quentin Tarantino’s DJANGO UNCHAINED

     July 29, 2012


At this year’s Saturn Awards, I was able to speak with James Remar on the red carpet before the show.   For fans of Dexter, we talked about the upcoming seventh season, what episode they’re filming right now, and his feelings on the show coming to an end.  In addition, with Remar playing Leonardo DiCaprio’s bodyguard in Quentin Tarantino‘s Django Unchained, we talked about what it was like to work for QT, what they did off set, the films Tarantino showed on the weekends, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.
